Abstract [en]

We introduce and study wheeled PROPs, an extension of the theory of PROPs which can treat traces and, in particular, solutions to the master equations which involve divergence operators. We construct a dg free wheeled PROP whose representations are in one-to-one correspondence with formal germs of SP-manifolds, key geometric objects in the theory of Batalin–Vilkovisky quantization. We also construct minimal wheeled resolutions of classical operads and as non-trivial extensions of the well-known dg operads and . Finally, we apply the above results to a computation of cohomology of a directed version of Kontsevich’s complex of ribbon graphs.
